Pre-Payment Options


Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen, or used for other things other than lunch.

Students who forget their money for lunch or breakfast (if applicable at your school site) or their account balance runs out of funds, will be able to receive a full meal. Balances owed will be communicated to the parent or guardian periodically.**
